rates -- >> ronald reagan -- stuart: steve forbes joins the company to talk about jack kennedy reference and joe biden's misrepresentation of the facts and the tone of the debate at 10:45. you have heard my reaction to the debate. joe biden was rude and showed extraordinary disrespect for his opponent. his laughter was contemptuous and inappropriate. on several occasions he was factually wrong. here is my daughter's take. she is 16. you watch and took notes. here is her first paragraph. most importantly it is hard to view that debate as the debate considering joe biden wouldn't stop interrupting. her first reaction was similar to most people. the vice president was aggressive from the start, trying hard to make up the ground his boss lawson. my daughter went on to say joe biden had a lot to say and prepared -- repaired some of the damage of obama's disaster last week. now the other side. paragraph 2 from my daughter's debate notes. ryan could have been more aggressive. based on facts, ryan won the debate and state collected. that is interesting. my daughter does not follow the issues tha

harwood? >> guys, i would just like to ask both paula and doug about what we heard from steve liesman today. their message was, especially from blankfein, if we get entitlement cuts yes, business should go along with tax increases as a solution to our debt deficit problem. paula, do you think that's the right answer from business and doug, is that the right answer for republicans? >> i heard those statements earlier today and i think it is a great representation of the kind of creativity we really are going to have to bring to these challenging economic times and i think the biggest theme from the debt reduction effort so far is, everything should be on the table and i think that's what the president has said and i think that's what you will hear tonight from joe biden. >> john, it's a great question. i think there are three components. you know we do have to have a strong foundation of growth. i think it's just a statement of the facts that we won't make progress on budget deficits unless the economy is growing. and the second thing we need to do is really just stop the bleeding. we'

, steve king lost some base support. democrats would love to pick up this seat. guest: i'm sure they would love to pick up the seat. the problem is they've already thrown in the towel. the rest of the democratic super pacs given up the seats. i'm glad they wasted money on this seat. steve king will win overwhelmingly. getting back to the budget. let's focus on the fact that barack obama budget was put in the house and senate and it got zero vote. that's a stilling argument. he's gotting zero votes, none in the house and none in the senate. listen, when you're negotiating, it's hard to negotiate with yourself. the democrats never figured out a way to get their whole coalition of democrats around everything. we look forward to negotiating with them and look forward to increasing job growth. host: robby mook, have democrats given up on vilsack? guest: that's untrue. we invested tremendous amount of money in the district. the real story here is this race is in play at all in the first place. the reason that it's in play, before there was a tea party steve king, was the tea party.

. steve? thank you for calling in. caller: i wanted to ask gilbert from oklahoma, he stated that none of mitt romney's sons are in the service. what branch of service did bill clinton, barack obama, and joe biden served in? these folks but little people because they decided not to serve, or to serve. my father came back from vietnam in 1971 and told me not to go into the service because of the way they were treated when they came home. my draft number was high enough that i did not have to go. i do not understand what is going on in this country. host: what should mitt romney talk about? caller: the military protection of our interests, he should continue to do so. i think like 5% of the cost in the pentagon, but we would not know, as we have not seemed to have a budget for anything. these folks call in for information -- bill clinton is the one who repealed glass- stiegel. it led to the downfall of housing and the problems we had in 2008. everyone contributed to it. 60 million jobs went away in the internet bubble. host: 94 calling in this morning. i want to point you to "the new yor

. and now evidently steve forbes, a former presidential candidate tweeting his endorsement of jack welch. then against almost everybody else in this town, a former economist on here, jared bernstein, said jack welch ought to be ashamed of himself. a former republican white house official also endorsed the integrity of the people who put these numbers together at the bureau of labor statistics. so jack welch and a couple of other people on an island on this one. really an inflammatory attack with no evidence to back it up. >> mike viqueira at the white house, thanks so much. >>> for reaction to that i'm joined by susan page, "usa today" and david nakamura, "washington post." good day to both of you. this is fascinating. susan, first of all, how much does this employment number blunt mitt romney's debate momentum? and do you think the white house is going phew, relieved at this? >> if not popping champagne bottles. two-ways in which this number was so useful to the white house yesterday. it got the unemployment rate below 8% which has been kind of a line of demarkation. the romney folks ha

consider the consequences are likely to be. steve races a fair point. i do think that we will make -- and those circumstances, we would make a major effort. it would fail. one of the reasons, is because, and this is not just theoretical, i had discussions with the saudis, and when the king said if they get it, we get it, i was duty bound to describe what the consequences would be cured and after 10 minutes of being a highly eloquent on this subject, he said to me, if they get it, we get it. there is a reality that they see their main competitor from every standpoint. including a religious standpoint. having an advantage over them. having a technological advantage. having a military advantage. they are not going to accept that. i think the reason our policy is prevention is because we understand what the consequences will be if we do not succeed in maintaining this. that is the point about containment. containment does not prevent the saudis for making this decision to go ahead and do this. and our ability to persuade them along the lines of, look, you can count on our insurance. i

in light of what was the last week in denver? >> steve, i think he touched on the biggest reason why this debate could be more important than these under cards typically are. that is because there is pressure on joe biden to stand and deliver, and to change the narrative from what we've had the last few days. which is a fact given president obama's weak performance in denver, that mitt romney for the first time it seemed a real bump in the polls, and in some states is polling narrowly ahead. so i think biden will try to turn that around, put paul ryan and the gop ticket back on the defensive and at the same time the burden is on trying to keep the mojo going, keep romney's sort of balance here a life released a few more days until the president and mitt romney face off again next week. so i think that's the biggest reason why this thing matters. also one important point and that is this is one of the first perhaps the only campaign where one side is really campaigning against the policies of the other parties vice president as much as they're running against the other party's preside

to design as steve squires explains. we notice it with the pan cam wide-angle camera. we hit it with a mini test to check for iron. it looks interesting, and we go over and we figure out its molecular composition with the apsx. everything works together. having instruments that work together encourages the teams to work together. this was squires' vision which he called science engineering. he said, you've got those sensors, and each of them provides complimentary bytes of knowledge. you're going to use the payload to the fullest advantage. if people look at it as being entirely at their disposal. if you were out there in the field, he says, doing geology with your field partner, you might be arguing about what this rock means or what that rock mean, but you're not going to be arguing about should we use the rock hammer or should we use the compass. we don't have pan cam guys arguing with mini test guys but rather geologists arguing with chemists about exploration. now, to appreciate that you need to know that this design and organization starkly contrasts with almost every other planetary

does that do to the republican party's politics on this issue? joining us now, steve carknacky, the co-host of msnbc's the cycle and a senior writer at thanks for being here. >> happy to be here. >> there were a ton of these gay marriage bans on the ballot in 2004 and the common wisdom was republicans thought it would drive up turnout and help george w. bush get elected by bringing out conservatives who might not like him but who really hated gay people. did that turn out to be the case in '04? >> there is all sorts of speculation about that. you can certainly match up. it was a year in which turnout went up surprisingly overall and it was sort of a base election where the base of each party was activated. i've never seen a definitive study that said yes we can clearly link the x number of voters in ohio or whatever would have stayed home if not for this being on the ballot. you can find a correlation between people who voted against it in a place like ohio and who voted for george w. bush but on a lot of other issues, too. >> sort of a mixed bag. the common wisdom doesn't m

and how the instruments had been used and how the goals affected the plan tomorrow. in the words of steve's collier's the principal investigators of the mer mission, this has been the first overland expedition on another planet. applying the tools at the chosen spots along the martian landscape we've learned how water has affected the chemistry of soil and rocks and found places in the past that were similar to wear life thrives on earth. home plate for example an area behind the columbia hills is about 100 meters across edomite the remnants of hot springs like those we find at yellowstone national park. this is how the planet to the field science proceeds by recognizing minerals, formations and process these that are familiar to what we understand on our home planet. the success of what is called planetology on mars is partly why it is an exciting place to study. we are on another planet. but it looks and feels a bit like home. just as the mer scientists make analogies with earth, my study of the field science at mars started by comparing it to how the field of science is done on earth.
